Library Day K-2

January 19, 2016

Today is Library/Portfolio Day at the elementary school.

As you will see, the only posted lessons you have for today is to choose your best work from marking period 2 in writing and math, and add it to your portfolio.

In addition to building your portfolio, we are encouraging all students to take time to visit their local library.

You can spend your Library Day by doing one or more of the following:

5. Create a Snow Globe and Write a Story About the Scene

Materials: small glass jar, a plastic figurine, glitter, water, glue (hot glue or superglue work best)

Decide what you would like to put in your snow globe.
Glue, place, and stick your plastic figurine to the inside of the jar lid.
Fill your jar with water and add glitter—1-2 teaspoons.
Screw the lid on the jar. You can also glue the lid for safety!

That's it! Shake your jar or tip it upside down to make it snow! Finally, write a short story about your scene!
